Menetou-Salon has some terroirs that rival Sancerre's best, at least in the hands of Sauvignon Blanc savant Paul-Henri Pellé. Ratier is a single-vineyard with kimmeridgian marl soils, and it shows such power and pedigree that you'll be saying I can't believe it's not Chavingol!

If you like fresh, mineral-driven white wine, you'll go bonkers for the wines of Paul-Henry Pellé. This guy is a star. Qualitatively, these wines can go tête-a-tête with top-shelf Sancerre, but they're a great deal less expensive. Farming is organic.
Pellé uses both stainless steel and wood, not only for élevage, but fermentation as well. This explains why the wines have bracing citric electricity tempered by a suave, creamy texture – "lemon curd" often pops up in our tasting notes.

Loire Valley Wines

The Loire Valley is France’s greatest source of value for anyone looking for elegant, terroir-driven wines. Our collection celebrates the region’s great diversity, with the mineral-driven whites of Muscadet and Sancerre, the beautiful Chenin Blancs and Cabernet Francs from villages like Vouvray and Chinon, and natural wines from everywhere in the region. Sometimes wonderfully fresh and gulpable, sometimes serious and age-worthy, the prices are always very reasonable.
